Our Manchester United fans here in the Transfer Tavern really are looking forward to seeing their side get going this season.
The men from Old Trafford won two major trophies last year but did not perform how they would have liked in the Premier League and that is where they need to improve for this campaign.
For sure, though, they seem to be going the right way about it at the moment with the likes of Romelu Lukaku arriving on a big money deal.
For sure, then, Jose Mourinho is aiming to win the Premier League this season but whilst we wait to see how they do, it looks as though one young star has the chance to join the club’s ranks.
Indeed, according to The Manchester Evening News, Gabriel Martinelli is training with the club with a view to him playing for the U18 side should he sign.
He appeared in friendly win against Lincoln City U18’s recently, too, and will be hoping that he can do enough to try and get himself a place in one of the world’s best academies.
Mourinho may not be seen as a man who gives youth a chance but this potential signing shows that United, as a club, are still on the look out for the best talent in the world.
Indeed, Martinelli would certainly prove that the Old Trafford side is still scouring the globe for new players and, though it is early in his career, he will surely see this opportunity to really make it as a player.
Let’s see if he can take it.
